5395: Uniformity Rules.
Publicis Groupe agencies Leo Burnett, Arc and Lapiz are allegedly adopting a dress code. What’s most outrageous about this announcement? Not the ridiculous decision to dictate employees’ wardrobes. Not the incredibly amateurish poster design. Not even the corny and corporate copywriting.
No, what’s most outrageous is the depiction of the companies as diverse workplaces.
Update: The ad turned out to be a joke played on employees. However, MultiCultClassics’ main point still holds true.
